Finish-it-Up Friday - and TGIF

TGIF - in this case it has a dual meaning.  Not only Thank God It`s Friday, but also Thank God It’s Finished.

Being retired, my schedule does not include an outside-the-home job. However, I do have a very busy Etsy shop, plus it’s tax season (meaning I had to install new tax software AND update my iMac to the latest operating system, then update myriad other programs....), and endless errands, appointments, and - stitching and sewing. I try to schedule sewing time in every single day. But that does`t always happen.  Sound familiar?

Anyway, this is the quilt for my son Shane that I finished several days ago.  He wanted bold and graphic, fairly masculine colors.   The finished size is about 55x70 inches - a nice lap quilt. It is one of my goals for the 2015 Finish Along that I blogged about here.

The backing is scrappy.  I used some of the leftover fabrics, a yard of Katarina Roccella Spirodraft from her Indelible line (LOVE it!) and assorted other texty and coordinating bits. Honestly, I like the back as much as the front (if not more).    :-)

Among other projects, I am now working on a quilt for my DGS. Should have a progress report next week.

I’m linking up to Crazy Mom Quilts and her Finish it Up Friday.

  2. This is a great quilt (both front AND back!). Your son should be thrilled.

  3. Yay finishes! I did my tax return today - ugh!

  4. Well done, it is bold and beautiful! I like the back too.

  5. Definitely bold bright and masculine. Great finish!

  6. This looks great, and I love the back as well! I'll bet your son is loving it!
